Yesterday was one of those hectic days that although tiring, it was completely reviving. I had a meeting in VT so I traveled all day and then literally got home, changed, and ran to the Music Hall of Williamsburg to see Selah Sue. She was opening for the fabulous Emile Sande (do check her out, she is a force ). The crowd was small so I was able to get up close and listen to this beautiful girl in a very personal way. It was just her and her guitar and wow, what an amazing, unique voice.
For the ones who don't know her, you are missing it. Hailing from Belgium, Selah sounds like a more spunky Erykah Badoo. She somehow developed an island vibe to her. Most of the songs have a touch of reggae to it. Completely refreshing. The best part of all is that my friend and I got to meet her outside by pure coincidence. She caught our attention because she was sitting on the sidewalk squeezing a rubber duckie. We did a double take to say the least. How random is that? Nevertheless, she was the sweetest! Really wish her lots of success on this side of the world. She is on (insert cheesy reference to her song now) Fyah.
